Josina and Friends' Big Jump

Tags: River education

Come watch elected officials from every level of government along with representatives from key agencies and advocates as they jump into the Chicago River at Ping Tom Park. This public education event will highlight the collective work done to improve the river’s water quality, and to show our commitment to making the Chicago River swimmable for all Chicagoans.

This is a fundraising event for Friends of the Chicago River's community education program. We ask that you consider donating or raising funds for this program that provides river education to schools and communities throughout the year.

Click here to donate. 

You don't need to purchase tickets to the event either.

We also know many of you probably want to jump in with us, but members of the public are not allowed to jump. Please come out and watch the big jump and cheer everyone on!
